Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.


How do you sell a luxury home in a down market? The same way you sell anything: you sell the benefits, and not the features.

The 4,250-square-foot, 14-room home sits on a half-acre lot and features four bedrooms, 3.2 baths, a large screened-in porch with a chandelier, but it also has something that no other house can boast: the staircase sledded down by Macaulay Culkin in the 1990 film Home Alone.

That’s right, the Home Alone home is for sale. The red-brick home so bravely defended by Culkin can be yours for only $2.4 million.

Unfortunately, it’s not always easy money for homes with cinematic history:

Meanwhile, another famous North Shore property, the Highland Park home featured in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, is temporarily off the market but it will be relisted, said Coldwell Banker agent Meladee Hughes. Originally listed at $2.3 million, it most recently was offered for $1.65 million.
